I ask myself more and more if it does make sense to have those tiny
packages in debian.

Well, one option would be to make use of the multiple upstream tarballs
feature of uscan and dpkg. The question with this would be, how do you
decide which node.js/npm packages would fit in one bundle and how would
you depend on them correctly?

I'v also bcc'ed this mail to ML of the Javascript packaging team so they
are aware of this discussion and can chime in with their opinions.
